To date they have secured the local Carrigaline Court Hotel, sponsorship for their pre-Dinner Gin Bar by the award winning Blackwater Distillery, pre-dinner entertainment by the one and only Velvin Lamont, famed for his appearance on The Voice followed by entertainment from the amazing Gemma & The Jets. There will be lots of fun guaranteed on the night, spot prizes galore, all donated very generously by many local businesses. On the night there will be also be a presentation for Best Dressed Lady.
